Who doesn’t like Lego, right!? When you combine that with the awesomeness of Star Wars, it’s bound to be a winner! Well, I got my hands on a Lego Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter (9493) recently and with a little bit of camera magic, I put together a time lapse of the build.
The Lego X-Wing measures over 12″ (33cm) in length and comes with 4 Minifigures; Luke Skywalker, Jek Porkins, R2-D2 and R5-D8. It features a retractable landing gear, 2 proton torpedoes, opening cockpit and wings that fold into attack mode, giving the ship it’s famous “X-Wing” classification.
The time lapse was created using 1 photo per 3 seconds played back at 25 fps. It was photographed using a Canon EOS 7D with a total of 2391 images. The images were then color adjusted in Lightroom 5 with the final time lapse created in Adobe Premiere Pro.

And the finished model…
